Classic Ragu Bolognese from Bon Appetit. She and my dad love this recipe. Since SP won't eat beef/veal, I was resigned to not being able to try this dish, but every time she raved about it, I was a bit jealous.
In each bite, I could taste the beef and veal and pancetta - the pancetta gave it a nice salty bite. The bolognese looks like it might be dry, but it wasn't. It was definitely moist. This DeLallo pasta was very good, too. It wasn't a boxed pasta. It was this: DeLallo Fettuccine Egg Pasta. We had not tried this kind of DeLallo pasta before.
A few 'tips:' mom trimmed the fat from the pancetta and bought very, very lean meats to keep the grease factor as low as possible. She used 2.5 cups of beef broth. She spent quite some time finely chopping her vegetables but if I made this, I would probably used the food processor and maybe even process the vegetables so much that they turn into a bit of a chunky paste.
SP did not eat the ragu bolognese. I offered him a taste and he refused. Instead he ate this:
It looked so sad next to the pasta.
